As the sun gradually falls below the horizon for the red planet's long and dark Arctic winter, NASA's Phoenix Mars Lander has detected evidence of snow falling on Mars.
According to a NASA statement, an instrument designed to study how the surface of the planet and its atmosphere interact detected the snow fall, which vaporised before hitting the ground.
"Nothing like this view has ever been seen on Mars."
